Editorial Reviews


“Anthony DeStefano will help you discover everything that was previously hidden from you.” Joan Wester Anderson, author of An Angel to Watch Over Me
“Reading Angels All Around Us is like spending time with a best friend who is able to take the intricacies of faith and break them down into easy lessons anyone can understand.” Maura Poston Zagrans, bestselling author of Miracles Every Day

"Anthony DeStefano’s latest book, Angels All Around Us, is a modern-day classic! No matter what your level of religious faith—and even if you have little or none—this book will transport you to places in the invisible realm that will challenge, inspire, and amaze you." Dr. Dick Eastman, International President of Every Home for Christ and President of America’s National Prayer Committee

“The increasing secularization of society has led, in the words of Pope Benedict XVI, to a sort of ‘eclipse of the sense of God.’  Anthony DeStefano’s book, Angels All Around Us, is a welcome attempt to remind Christians of truths which, though mentioned explicitly in the Gospel and belonging to the deposit of faith, in recent decades have been overshadowed.  His latest book is a much-needed effort to utilize modern methods of communication to spread the Gospel message and also to work toward a greater Christian unity.” Archbishop Rino Fisichella, President, Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, Vatican City, Rome

“Anthony DeStefano brings to life ‘the hidden world God has created for us,’ a world that surrounds us but is difficult for even the most convinced Christian to get in touch with, much less the seeker or non-believer. And he does this in a more vivid and realistic way than I would have thought possible. Angels, devils, and grace? DeStefano makes them almost visible. This is a wonderful, compelling book, completely consistent with traditional Christian teaching and common sense – and very, very readable.”Fred Barnes, Executive Editor, Weekly Standard

“Sadly, many people today are so materialistic in their thinking that they've forgotten that the most important things in life are unseen and spiritual. Love, honor, compassion, forgiveness, hope–all of these are invisible. Finally, there is a book that makes the whole invisible spiritual world come to life in the most extraordinary and vivid way. Anthony DeStefano's words will inspire even the most hardened and materialistic cynic to begin exploring a richer, fuller life based on faith in a God who is so good.” Delilah, Nationally Syndicated Radio Host

“I may not always agree with Anthony DeStefano, but there is no doubt he is a highly intelligent and witty writer; and assuming the existence of an invisible world, he has produced a very interesting and thought-provoking book about spirituality.”—Vincent Bugliosi, author of Divinity of Doubt and 5 New York Times Bestsellers, including Helter Skelter

Format: Paperback
I just finished reading Angels All Around Us: A Sightseeing Guide to the Invisible World by Anthony DeStefano and have learned my lesson about judging a book by its cover. While I enjoyed reading the book, I must say that this book is certainly not what it is advertised to be. Yes, the topic of angels was discussed and I was quite impressed by DeStefano's ability to condense Saint Thomas of Aquinas's works on angels into a book that was easy to follow. However, this book was more of a bare bones introduction to a lot of fundamental Christian beliefs regarding charity, the existence of pain, the Holy Trinity, demons, souls, and quite a few other topics.

On an introductory level, this book is great for readers out there who have not yet read the works of some of the more contemporary Christian thinkers of our time (like G.K. Chesterton and C.S. Lewis). It is also great for young Christians, or even new Christians, who are not yet ready to tackle the beautiful, but extremely difficult, theological works of St. Augustine and St. Thomas of Aquinas. In this book, DeStefano demonstrates a great talent for breaking down some pretty dense Christian works into pieces that can be easily digested by a wide audience of readers. With that said, I must point out that this book is probably not suitable for Christians with doctorates in theology.

This book was a quick read and pretty easy to follow. I liked how DeStefano broke down all of the subjects covered into concise paragraphs. I would recommend this book as an introduction to angels, grace, spiritual warfare, God, the role of suffering, the soul, Christian beliefs regarding the afterlife, and quite a few other subjects. It is not necessarily a book about angels and the invisible world.

This is an insightful book for every Christian who has ever wondered about the spiritual world around us. Who has ever wondered about the afterlife and where our physical bodies go after death and how we will be reunited with our loved ones. It explains the battle between good and evil in a way you can really understand. I was enlightened and inspired!

Format: Paperback
This book, "Angels All Around Us," is one of the best books I've ever read on the subject of Christianity. In such a simple, yet powerful way, DeStefano answers questions I didn't even know I'd had! The book is small and easy to read, and it covers subjects that everyone has questioned at some point or another, i.e. God's relationship with us, Heaven, Evil, Spiritual Realities, Hell, Suffering, REASONS for certain mysteries! It's crazy good! In all my reading on the subject of faith and God, I have never come across a more profound explanation of these truths. I would recommend this book to ANYONE at anytime, it's THAT varied in it's specific targets...and speaks to every need. I am amazed! So worth the purchase and it's a great Christmas/anytime gift (I already ordered it for 6 people's gifts)!

Format: Paperback
I received this book as part of the Blogging for Books program in exchange for an honest review. I was somewhat excited to receive this book, because of the title. I know that's a little shallow, but I think most Christians have a fascination with angels and the "Invisible World." In fact, the book was originally titled "The Invisible World," and in my opinion that's what the book should have remained titled, as there was only one chapter that dealt with angels.

The book starts off with a chapter called Haunt Detector, a phrase attributed to Fr. Frank Pavone. I'm not a big fan of referring to feelings of other worldly happenings as a haunt detector. It just seems to put a ghostly spin on angels, demon, and spiritual matters. So I was one chapter into this book, and already had a bad taste in my mouth.

The third chapter, aka the only chapter that really mentions angels, did a fair to good job, at best, of covering the subject of angels. If you know the slightest thing about angels, this chapter does nothing to add to your knowledge of angels. You receive a brief description of what angels are and their purpose, surrounded by several sweet stories of possible angel encounters people had.

The book wasn't a total disappointment. It does a good job on other topics it discusses, such as spiritual warfare, grace, and suffering, but opinions are too often inserted when backed up facts would have been more appreciated. I just feel that the title was misleading and should have remained "The Invisible World." I am someone who when he picks up a book, he goes into it with a certain expectation, and if those expectations are not met or exceeded, I am usually disappointed. So part of my disappointment might stem from going against the adage of judging a book by its cover.

A few weeks ago I received an amazing book in the mail that gave me chills with every turn of the page. Going hand-in-hand with traditional Christian theology, this book is amazing at explaining the spiritual beings that are very active in our lives that we experience on a daily basis. Did you know that you have a guardian angel? Do you know that the room you are currently sitting in may be filled with any number of angels? Do you ever get the feeling you are being protected in some way but can't really explain it? What about those times that "voice" is letting you know that you should do this or that? All of these questions can be answered with something that everyone has - "The Haunt Detector." That knowing feeling that some thing is around you and very close.

There may not be much talk of these "beings" today as long ago. But, that does not mean that they do not exists. Father Adams from one of our local parishes spoke of angels and has had me hooked ever since. As explained in the book, he told us that when God created us, he also created the angels. Within that society of beings, there are different groupings of them: Cherubim, Archangels, Guardians, to name a few. The Guardians are what caught my attention. He told us that for each person in the world (those who have passed, here now, and will be born) have a Guardian angel. God created a "number" of angels based on people who were going to be on this Earth, basically. Each Guardian is assigned a person and that person is their job. Amazing. Brings back that "lost sense of wonder" in out world, doesn't it? If you would like to get back that wonder and mystery, this book is for you!

"The most beautiful thing we can experience in life is the mysterious." ~ Albert Einstein
